Very interesting threads about orthotics. I had some leather ones made for me about 2 yrs ago. Cost £90. I overpronate. The podarist said to use them with Asics 2080. I got them because the pads of my feet burn like hell after about 5 miles of running about 60 mins. I dont run very fast. It has made no difference at all really. They are a bit better, but the spray I buy from Boots for my burning feet with helps. I stop and spray them after about 3 miles and I can then carry on for another 2 miles.I have off road neutral trainers and transfer them into them, but feet still burn. I had walking boots and my feet still burn. I have tried all sorts of socks and all types of makes of trainers, but it makes no difference. I was thinking of trying a different podarist. I live in the Stoke-on-Trent area.
Hi. I purchased a Sad light from Daily Telepgraph special offer last Dec 2002. It is a large one was about £100. I also started taking St John's Wort and after about 2 weeks felt a great improvement in my mood. Never had SAD before until last December. Must say it (the SAD light) and St John's Wort have been great. Have it on all day at work as I work on a Computer. Dont use it on Sat or Sun and feel fine now.
Hi. Read about this problem and yes I have the same hot burning feet. Have tried everything. Sprayed with Boots footspray containing Witch-hazel & Methol just before I run. Then also put talc in my 1000 mile socks and also in my Acisc 2080 shoes. Have been to a Podarist and had leather orthotics made and although it improved slightly, my feet still burn like hell after about 50 mins - 4 miles of running. I cant run very fast. I have tried everything. Had Mizuno trainers, Reabok Trainers Asics 2070 and 2080 and Thorlo Socks, Falke Socks, 1000 mile socks. I have tried everything and nothing works. My second toe is not larger than my big toe so I assume it can't be Morton's. I did read an interesting fact in Runners World very recently, saying about Neuteral Shoes to use with Othotics. I use 2080's for Overpronation. I am wrong? The podarist did give me list and Asics was on the list. Although I have Sachoney Off Road Trainers for when I run in the local Hash and they are neuteral, but with my Othotics in them makes no difference after 45 mins my feet still burn like hell.
After running 45 mins My toes and the balls of my feet get burning hot. I have seen a Podiatrist and have had a pair of leather orthosis made. They have made a 20% difference but that is all. I've been told to soak my feet in cold water 10 mins before a run and 10 mins after a run as my blood vessels rise to the top of my feet and this is why they burn.I can only run for 45 mins and would like to run longer. At the moment I am wearing Mizuno Conviction 2001 and they are now worn out. I am thinking of buying Asics 2070. I overpronate slightly. Any help and advice would be appreciated.
